It's good to be needed... right?

I am indispensible to the smooth running of my household. I perform tasks that apparently no one else is capable of. Kind of like I'm a super hero, or something.

For example, I am the only one here who knows how to bring in the mail.

I possess the power to replace the toilet paper. This is a magical skill that few others possess.

Without me, we would no longer be able to put trash in the trash can, because no one else knows how to put a new bag in when the trash is taken out.

And, Dear Lord, imagine the horror if my family were deprived of cold drinking water. Without me, the empty water carafe would sit in the fridge, empty, which is how I usually find it when I want a cold glass of water.

So tell me, what what makes you irreplacable in your homestead?

I am the only person in my house who knows how to do laundry, then sort it, fold it, and put it away.

I'm the only person who can pick stuff up and put it away. If I weren't around no one could walk in this house because every horizontal surface including the floor would be piled with junk.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT THE TOILET PAPER ROLL? does it have some sort of kryptonite qualities that make men weak or something?!?!?! what really ticks me off is when i get into the toilet and see the empty roll right on top of where the NEW ONES ARE?!?!?!
sheesh! ;-/
and really....i am the only one that can fill the kerosene tanks in our heaters (our main source of heat in the winter) and dump the coffee filters.
grrrrrrrrr.

Dear one,

You need to teach the girl these skills. You will still be irreplaceable, but not as tired.

My girl can help with this - at least the mail retrieval part. She has yet to master the toilet paper or garbage can part. Maybe we can have a session for the two of them!

All of those things you mentioned, plus I am the only one capable of recycling, apparently!

I purchase toothpaste, tp, and paper towels, b/c apparently it is very complex.

yeah is good to be needed... there's no point for me to have everything in one shot, life doesn't make any sense like this.
